About Cameron Leon White
Cameron White has long seemed destined to play a significant role in AustraliaS-B-Cs future. Only the precise nature of that role has baffled his admirers. The Victorian captain has a game perfectly suited to cricketS-B-Cs bite-sized format. In 45 Twenty20 matches, his 1260 runs have come at a staggering strike-rate of 151.62 runs per 100 balls. He was restricted by injury last summer and managed just four games in the KFC Big Bash. He claimed four wickets at the miserly average of 6.75 with his skidding spinners, but managed only 83 runs at 20.75.
He bowls a good line and does a neat line in self-deprecation too: "Theres no flipper or anything exciting like that in my repertoire," he professed a while back, "IS-B-Cm just trying to get my leggie right." What is not in doubt is his cricket sense, nor his maturity. Despite his discomfort at being the No. 1 spinner, he held firm on debut while facing the best players of spin in the business. As the series wore on it became clear he was not the answer to AustraliaS-B-Cs troubles and after four matches he was shifted aside with five wickets and 146 runs.
